Unable to locate Main Admin Panel (14 posts)

    Hi -
    I'm totally new to this, so please bear with me. I have WP running, but after reading some of the Codex I tried to locate where I can upload media through the control panel. However, my control panel consists only of the Dashboard...no sidebar, just the dashboard and add-ins at the bottom.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks in advance,
    jake

    This is an update to the original post...
    From what I am reading, I am missing the sidebar for the admin. I have no widgets, and no plugins. This is the same in both Firefox and Chrome. IE7 will not even accept my login ( I don't use it much anyway).

    I found posts that said something about an arrow or circle that will expand the sidebar, but I don't seem to have that, either.

    Help, please...

    Thanks again.

    Here is the url:
    http://disciplespath.org/blog/wp-admin/index.php

    - but I'm not sure how you can do that since it is my admin function...

    Sorry I was unclear...

    If you have a screenshot, you should be able to host that on your site somewhere like:

    dpath.org/stuff/screenshot.jpg

    and we'd be able to see what's going on...

    Sowwy but that doesn't work...

    In order to have a screenshot of your admin page, you would take a shot, on your puter, then upload that to your site and then give us the link...

    Any such link would have to have a .jpg or .gif or .png at the end of the link...

    for example, http://www.teras.org/stuff/screenshot.jpg

    ((That's not a valid link, but it will give you the idea...))

    Apologies...

    This is probably the simplest:

    http://disciplespath.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/screenshot.jpg

    Hopefully this will do it..

    OK, that works...

    First thing is that you are using a really old version of wordpress, so that means that what info you are reading prolly is for version 2.8.1 which has a lot of changes in it from where you are at the moment versionwise...

    Seeing that you are starting a new blog, I would suggest that you do the upgrade to 2.8.1 that is noted in your panel before anything else...

    Hope this helps!
